Agricultural futurist Lowell B. Catlett predicts the next decade will see more change in agriculture than the last century, and bankers will find out why during the American Bankers Association’s (ABA) National Agricultural Bankers Conference, Nov. 16-19 at the Des Moines Marriott Downtown in Des Moines, IA.

Registration is $925 for ABA members and $1,225 for non-members.

ABA has held national conferences for more than five decades to provide rare access to industry experts, academics and peers who share proven strategies for success in the ever-changing world of agricultural banking.

This year’s conference will feature discussions about trends in the marketplace, business ethics and how to preserve them, predictions about the industry in 2025 and the national economic picture.

More than 40 experts will provide the latest tools for making good loans in the changing world of credit standards. They will also share strategies for immigration policy, margin calls, fertilizer prices and agricultural policy.

Other sessions will cover succeeding in today’s competitive marketplace, passing on the family farm, working to support rural America, the next generation of biotech crop traits and what the election will mean to the future of agriculture.
